A Little Bit of History
According to Historic England and Francis Frith:- All Saints’ was built in 1837 on land donated by Sir John Kennaway. It was needed to provide additional Anglican church accommodation as the population of Sidmouth expanded in the early/mid 19th century. Construction cost £3,000 of which £1,500 was given by Rev Joseph Bradney. In 1869 Rev Baring Baring Gould became vicar. The architect, John Henry Taylor (c1792-1867), was a London-based practitioner with his office in Parliament Street. He was president of the Surveyors’ Club in 1838 and was one of the founding members of the RIBA in 1834. He exhibited the designs for All Saints’, Sidmouth, at the Royal Academy in 1835 and 1838.
Our new logo
The two graphic elements of the logo represent All Saints’ Church and the community which it serves, Sidmouth. The quatrefoil, which is represented in wood and glass in the church building, is a symbol, in the Christian tradition, of the four evangelists, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. As such, it is particularly appropriate for a biblically based church such as All Saints. The ribbon represents the essential topography of Sidmouth, hills, cliffs and seashore. The two together symbolise our desire to share and to live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our community. The font is Grenoble SF, and the colours are from a simple RGB palette.
